Ok...umm im kinda nervous cause im new here but...here it goes.
Diadems have become really popular where i live (San Pedro, Nuevo Leon. Mexico)
It's been sooooo long since i made anythign i said
" not my style but...know what? I'll give it a try!"

So here are my first 2 attempts to make a -decent- diadem


This one was made with an "Old Gold" colored ribbon, brown small feathers, white-spotted brown feathers and an amber flower "gem" (those cute little jewels made of plastic , i have no idea how they are call in english, sorry)


This one was made with black ribbon and a silver, metal flower i found laying around my desk.


well...so far those are the only ones i've make, but im supposed to make some others for my little cousins so i'll post those images onc ei finished n.n
any advice, comment, critic or suggestion would be loved.

thank you for reading this! n.n

bienvenida - welcome here!


i guess dressy headbands are coming back into style all over(?)
 i haven't worn any in decades, either... but yours are very pretty; i am sure you will get some good use out of them!

i think "plastic jewels" might actually be the right word.  can't think of a more correct one right now, anyway.

you just need to add a little liquid silicone to the inside and you start covering the headband with the ribbon. How ever if you wrap one tightly enough you might not need the silicone.  Just be prepared, if you use the liquid silicone you need to be really cautious cause i can get really messy XP
